Microsoft Labels Autistic Boy A Cheater On Xbox Live

There's a bit of a she-said, they-said situation going on near Seattle, with the mom of an 11-year-old boy saying Microsoft reset his gamerscore unfairly and the company saying it was done because he was cheating. Regardless of the truth, the boy has been branded a cheater on Xbox Live and has to earn whatever achievements he had before all over again.

Jennifer Zdenek told Q13 FOX News that her son Julius Jackson went online recently only to discover that his gamerscore had been reset and his account branded as belonging to a cheater. (Microsoft, Xbox 360)

Oh nice, Microsoft!! Way to pick on the less fortunate!

Ok, I just had to say that. I don't really know the details. :D
mcmmaster  +   1332d ago | Well said
You don't even need to see the details, clearly its the mum that is at fault as why on earth would she let an 11 year old boy play Dead Rising 2 (AN 18 YEAR OLD GAME, well in the UK), to make it worse he's autistic. Think its the mum that needs sorting out and not Microsoft

Yea that is pretty messed up that you would let you kid play mature rated games and especially one as impressionable as a child with autism.

But on topic I like how microsoft just goes around banning whomever they want or resetting achievements without proof and SONY well never does anything to cheaters whether it be sharing saves to get trophies you didn't earn or just cheating on an online game to just plain internet stalking. One goes to the extreme the other does nothing. I had some loser on PSN with a racist name basically the name says he killed Ni***rs(Blacks), he would send me messages calling me the "N" word and would make new accounts when I blocked other ones. He went through 10 before he stopped. A Sony rep told me on the phone to just keep blocking him and that he didn't find the name offensive at all either even though dozens of people reported this racist stalking cheating POS. They also tried to push off responsibility to the publisher of the games. What a joke. Then you got M$ who will ban you or remove a gamertag if it even slightly offends someone and take away your achievements if you get enough of your friends to report one person as cheating for no reason but you don't like them.

One goes overboard and the other doesn't do crap but as for the boy I seriously doubt the kid was cheating he's probably just extremely good at games due to his autism.
edgeofblade  +   1331d ago
It's quite telling that the mother was refereed to the legal department. That means she came in ranting and raving and claiming "AYM GONNA SEEW YEW" ("I'm going to sue you"). That's the standard response anytime someone threatens legal action.

@ DaCajin

Idk, DaCajin. You can get banned pretty quickly for cursing someone out in a back and forth argument (replying back with mgs) on the PSN, surprisedly even in chat (notice the censoring in the text chat) as well as for ANY little thing you say (Damn fool-banned) or do in Home.

"especially one as impressionable as a child with autism."

How exactly can a person that does not know right from wrong, danger from safety, life from death, be impressionable by video games or m rated anything?

"I seriously doubt the kid was cheating he's probably just extremely good at games due to his autism."

^This you couldn't be more right about. My nephew
(autistic) is a savant at counting, memory and he has uncanny balance. He loves video games but unlike the kid in this article, he isn't very good at them. So this is probably the one area this kid excels.

Either way MS should find a way to make this right.

@mcmmaster

You never played any games the "rating" said you were too young for? You'd probably be the only person on earth.

(I put rating in quotation because, really, I don't know anything about the people who hand out these ratings. I don't know of any studies to back these ratings either, and I don't know of any respectable study that says ANY game genre affects children in any negative way. But here's a case study of one for you: me. Played every violent game I ever wanted to before I was old enough to meet the "rating", and it hasn't affected me in the least.)

Two wrongs don't make a right.

Sure, I'd be right there to tell her what games are and are not appropriate for a child, though one should note that many autistic children have a stronger bearing over what is reality and what isn't when it comes to these sort of thing (I have two autistic nephews like this). But, regardless of the possibility of this being a matter showing bad parenting, Microsoft needs to have a way to explain why someone is a cheater as well as proof to prove that someone has cheated.

If I suddenly had my account labeled as such, you better believe I would be all over Sony or Microsoft with the reason why and method that they used to determine this. In fact, it's something they should have in place, ability to prove why someone is a cheater, prior to implementing the ability to label an account as such.

I find it hard to believe a autistic kid cheated (albeit I don't know the severity of his condition), but I find it also hard that MS would detect non-cheaters and label them a such.

That would open them up to lawsuit so it seems reasonable that MS is 100% damn sure some cheating went on regardless of who did it.

Because you wouldn't let your kid play that game doesn't make her wrong. She clearly knows what he's playing. If she thought he couldn't tell it was a game not real life I'm sure she would do something. I guess your parents must have locked you in a room with Barney all day long?

MidnytRain  +   1331d ago
That's not really the point of the article, though. No one is blaming video games for this, so I don't know why people are getting so defensive. There's no actual proof that shows us if he was or wasn't cheating, so it doesn't make sense to pick sides at this point. But I will say that this wouldn't be the first time Microsoft has punished somebody who was innocent.

Really, and you know this how exactly?
Autistic people don't all fall under one class. There are so many variables. Most autistic people lack social skills and most excel at certain things. Maybe gaming is his.

As far as mature rated games. I don't think this applies to most autistic kids. They don't know what age means. Sex, death, illness or right and wrong. How are they suppose to be influenced in anyway by M rated titles? Most of the people posting under this article obviously know very little about this subject.

I agree with that swordf1sh but I am not debating that. I am merely pointing out that megaton could not be more wrong about autistic kids having friends. The most common trait of the illness, besides severe OCD, is next to no social skills.

Megaton perception is often very misleading. I don't get into it on this site to often but this is one topic I probably know more about the 99.9% of N4G members.

edgeofblade  +   1331d ago
Seriously, the burden of proof for Microsoft to take action is insanely high. They have a very specific set of rules. For example, if there is no record of you playing online, and you have all these online achievements... cheater. It's that simple.

I know so many people love the "Micro$oft ar teh evil corporashin" line, but why? Why would Microsoft ban this kid if it wasn't true? Do they get evil points or something?

But seriously, Microsoft doesn't just go around deleting people's achievements without evidence that there was cheating involved. It's unfortunate that her son has autism and this will effect his ability to enjoy his console online, but he shouldn't have violated Xbox Live's EULA in the first place.

edgeofblade  +   1331d ago
I'm going out on a potentially offensive limb here... but I wonder if this kid was autistic before this story. Some people do horrible things to get their way...

If that's not true, then I wonder if the social isolation in this case is what causes this kid's social problems. Did the mother self-diagnose the kid with autism? Was she ever involved with an anti-immunization lawsuit?

I mean, look at the mother. She looks like... well... trash. And getting a referral to MS Legal means she's already made legal threats.

OK one thing that is missing from this story.... I noticed they completely glossed over whether or not her son actually did cheat. Not once was it said by mom, the news cast or son "he didn't cheat".

If anything mom should be using this as a teaching tool for her son. Clearly he is a fairly functional Autistic child so helping him understand (assuming he did cheat) that it was wrong... and doing something wrong has consequence....no matter who you are.

I have a 2yr old son who was born with Dandy Walker Syndrome and most likely will grow up in a very similar state of isolation. It pains me to hear about a child like this young man having one of his outlets changed (he still can play games mind you). BUT... he is still a person like everyone else on Live and needs to play within the guidelines.

As for mom... it is disturbing to see her letting her boy play mature games. So much for letting the parents be responsible huh?

friends are not something you just suddenly decide to have one day. there has to be a person that has interest in you in order for them to want to be your friend.

at age 11 social acceptance is very important. you have to choose your friends wisely because you will be judged by the company you keep. now ask yourself how many 11 year olds want to be friends with someone that has a disease and is socially akward? now how many want to be friends with the kids who are athletic and into sports and interacting with others? when they say he cant have friends, its probably a nice way of saying "no one will be his friend". hell there are kids without autism that go thru school with no friends and get bullied everyday.

Just because someone reports you as a cheater doesn't mean you get labelled as one. That person being reported gets checked out first.

They don't ban people just because some butt hurt kid wasn't as good as you. Do you realize virtually everyone would have been labelled a cheater if that was the case.

This kid has cheated in some way as has got labelled a cheater and rightly so. He should not receive special treatment because of his mild autism.

He's austistic for goodness sakes, he does not understand the concept of cheating, his only social outlet is playing online and he has cheater under is gamertag, they should elaborate as to why he is a cheater, does he have a modded Xbox for example? we need to know why they say he cheated, innocent until proven guilty remember that guys, until then this is defermation of charactor and likely very upsetting to a boy who could be damaged if he is tormented online as a result of having cheater under his gamertag, this in my opinion is poor behavior on Microsofts part.

Actually... Microsoft can ban your ass for anything they want. Legally. You agree to it when you join Xbox Live. However, if you talk to their team and listen to their stories, they go through a very rigorous training and their process is very customer service focused. As far as I'm concerned, they are above reproach.

Yeah first problem is the autistic boy play M rated games. While we know most people let their kids do it, your on live news. Second thing is MS and their "systems". Ever since the dawn of the first Xbox and banhammer, as Bungie calls it, Microsoft has never had to explain themselves. When an account gets suspended, gamertag banned from XBL, or in this case labeled a cheater Ms just has the same blanketed response...our tools said you were bad. This is a repeat of the case where they removed a guys account from Fort Gay (an actual city). No one's detection tools are perfect but if the tool don't provide the details as to what was flagged then your tools are s***. Find the bug, admit the problem, and fix it.

Sad, Microsoft ban a kid for no reason and if they had one. Then why didn't they say why they ban him? An didn't reply back to FOX News?

Yeah something is up.

1 - He probably cheated, no one ever said he didn't cheat.
2 - He didn't get banned MS just took his achievements away and put Cheater on his gamertag (PS3 equivalent to resetting your trophy count and putting cheater next to your PSNid).

An once again, why couldn't they tell his mom why or FOX News?

It isn't hard to give a reason, ban or reset, it is pretty much the same if you lose everything you worked on.

Kid didn't look smart to know how to cheat, in less he use type in cheats.

I'm surprised she isn't suing
nygamer28  +   1331d ago
sue??? really?
RockmanII7  +   1331d ago
Yea, everyone sues nowadays. It's not right, but there have been lawsuits that would be dumber than this one where the plaintiff won.

Oh yeah lets just take this to court over 1500 measly GS.. when the mum doesn't even know if he really cheated or not.. /S

MS doesn't do this for no reason idiots.
